Replacement of the Interstate 81 bridges over Route 11, Norfolk Southern Railroad, and Middle Fork Holston River is underway and motorists can anticipate periodic delays. The project began in fall 2019 and wraps up fall 2022.


The bridges were build over 50 years ago and have reached their life span. Replacement of the bridges, which carry approximately 29,000 vehicles per day, will enhance safety.
